Review of Effective Japanese Usage Guide by Ben Bullock

From the book jacket:

This is a fairly useful book which answers a lot of the typical "what is the difference between manabu and benkyou suru" questions. Not very comprehensive despite its large size, because the furigana and romanization of all the many example sentences and the duplication of each explanation in both English and furiganaed Japanese means that a lot of space is wasted.
